Today sucked

Yesterday I enjoyed a wonderful fish and chips.  Today, it all came back up.  Dammit!  I remember now that the second Monday after my chemo is a day of nausea and sleeping all day.  Well, seems to be repeating itself. I blame it on the whole lemon I ate yesterday.  Ate it like an apple.  No accounting for cravings! Probably the pulp jammed my up a bit. Or more than a bit!
      Did some fighting yesterday.  Felt SO much better yesterday than today. 

And its raining.  I just watched three feet of snow vanish in two hours.  And not before time!  OTOH, for those dumb enough to build in a flood plain the river is getting even for all those nice views you got last summer!  The Rideau River is two feet over its banks right now.  Lots of nice riverview houses have a lot of water in their basements, not to mention the most saturated a septic field can possibly get.  They are all moving out.  Double price for water front property?  Serves you right.

Just got finished with Dr. Beliveau's book on foods that fight cancer.  The holy trinity is Tumeric, (combined with peppers to make curry)  Flax seeds fresh ground and Tomato sauce.  Wash it down with green tea, and you will never get cancer.  Or rather, you already HAVE cancer (everybody has!) and this will keep it from vascularizing or otherwise growing bigger than a pin prick. 
       Funny thing though....my subconscious mind is smart enough to know what foods are good for me...so I get cravings for garlic and onions...foods which I normally detest.  Also lemons and orange juice.  Yogurt, hard boiled eggs, salmon and buttermilk.  All good.  And I throw up in the presence of a cheese burger and fried chicken.  I believe that beef will kill ya sooner or later!  I wish I could stand bacon and pulled pork, but it ain't gonna happen.  Used to love that stuff.  The subconscious mind says...Hey dude...the nitrates and smoke will kill ya. 
     Just thought it was weird that my cravings and Dr. Beliveau's book correlated so well.

Good to hear you are doing better!!! I think of both of you often, and I wish the prognosis was better...

Interesting indeed! It's never too late to beat cancer. "You are what you eat" & other similar cliches do have some credence to them. Besides, I'm just getting back into fighting form now to once again "Get Stuck Lads!" at the sword salon with you beside me..or in front of me..grin

On a slightly related note, Dr Beleveau is the formost expert on Samurai armour in Canada. It was HIS collection which we went to see last year...finest collection of Samurai armour I have ever seen.

More snow today! Its 15/04/2014 and a half inch is sitting on my car. Crikey.

Listening to Kris Kristopherson on you tube. Since I am IN A Fight with the Devil, I played his version. Please check it out. Its WORTH the trouble!

Do what your heart, soul, stomach tell you is right. I think trying to fit anyone's mold is not what its cracked up to be. If your body says hard boiled eggs and garlic, eat them. Even if someone's book says not to, they aren't fighting your fight. Just keep it up, and don't give it up! I am still here, and posting a lot now, so I check in on this site too. Now that I know you are posting again I will check more often. Stay strong, and you can email me any time you need to vent, I am always here for a friend, and I do mean any time!
